Team Hadleigh

Interviews and sound editing to create content for a web based mobile app, part of Team Hadleigh, 2012.

Team Hadleigh was an Essex County Council led Heritage Lottery Funded project which aimed to showcase the fascinating heritage and culture of Hadleigh, Essex, associated with the Olympics Mountain biking events at Hadleigh Country Park.

School children from Hadleigh Junior School and Westwood Academy researched local heritage with help of Hadleigh and Thundersley Community Archive. Research along with artwork and audio interviews lead directly into the mobile web app and audio guide as well as the creation of several large-scale textiles by local volunteers at Hadleigh Old Fire Station.

I interviewed a wide cross-section of the community to unearth local people's memories of the area and highlight the places that really matter to them. Local historians and specialists were also interviewed to give insights into the history of Hadleigh Salvation Army Colony, Hadleigh Castle and the Country Park to create an engaging and informative tour which was accessible on wands from the local library as well as the mibile phone app.
